Stages and Changes


As I watched my daughter stride confidently across the stage to receive her college diploma last weekend, I felt a surge of pride, then a wave of nostalgia. The cliche "seems like just yesterday", so trite and overused, yet so true.....

It seems like yesterday that I made that walk before beaming parents and friends to grasp  my diploma. And yesterday that John and I were married, and just five minutes ago that my daughter was born. 

I remember spending hours impatiently dreaming of  my future. 

And now, here we are. 

Isn't life grand?  I just wish it would slow down a little.

I remember walking across that same stage with you, crisp white nursing uniforms, white shoes and nurses caps. It is truly amazing to see our families/children now.......
